Help will google

Post by Yardreamer » Thu Jul 10, 2014 1:17 am

Greetings
New user to the forums here so please if this question is redundant my apologies.

When I am trying to load a goggle satellite image the satellite image does not show but will show in goggle maps.
second.... I have windows 7 64bit and noticed that there is a 64 bit addon to bring the version up to 314
But when I unpack into the SBX folder and run the application I recive a INI folder error and the
SBX will not run.
sincere thanks Dreamer

PS what is the INI file so might be able to correct this myself

Delete (or rename) the old 313 ini file, and SBuilderX314 will build a new compatible file.

Google often changes it's map tiles, and it requires building a new DLL to keep up with the version number. I sometimes will contribute a new DLL that can be uploaded here and at other websites. I may update it this weekend, time permitting.

Where would I find that...as well now I am receiving a run time error saying there is a newer version ... so as for the maps Google satellite is a poor choice for the map overlay to create the photo scenery ...

The ini file is in the same folder as the SBuilderX.exe

The 64-bit SBuilderX is named SBuilderX.exe

The 32-bit SBuilderX is named SBuilderX313.exe The 32-bit will not work after a proper update, as the support DLLs are all set as 64-bit.
